Splatoon 2 - Love beats Money in the latest Splatfest

Wow, I can't believe it. Love actually ended up beating out money in Splatoon 2's latest Splatfest. That makes me feel all warm and fuzzy! Maybe people aren't so bad after all!

Thanks to Neo Dark for the heads up!

Switch Pro Controller: Splatoon 2 Edition discontinued according to Amazon

Looks like Nintendo was serious about the Splatoon 2 Edition of the Switch Pro Controller being a limited-time thing. Amazon has updated their product listing for the controller, stating that the item is now discontinued. If you still want to grab one of these, you better hop on any stock you can find out there!

Just like the Sloshing Machine, the Sloshing Machine Neo can be effective on enemies hiding in the terrain…and just like the Sloshing Machine, you shouldn’t try to wash your clothes in it (this was hard research, indeed). Rounding out the kit is the Point Sensor to reveal the location of opponents to your team, and the Splat-Bomb Launcher to wreak a little havoc.

Team Love all the way, no doubt about it. I always struggle which side of the Splatfest I want to fight for, but not this time. Money is great and I'd like more of it, but you can't beat love. Love might not pay the bills, but it can keep you motivated!

Splatoon 2 - Team Gherk-OUT wins EU Splatfest

I am not a pickle fan, but I didn't have a chance to voice my opinion in Europe's Gherk-IN Vs. Gherk-OUT Splatfest. Looks like the team I would have chosen fought valiantly and took away the victory in the end. I guess team Gherk-IN really got themselves...into a pickle?!

Our Squid Research colleagues in Japan have just discovered details on a weapon currently in development. The Dark Tetra Dualies feature four ink-ejecting nozzles that allow you to execute up to four dodge rolls in a row! How is that even possible??

Splatoon 2 - Goby Arena stage revealed

More screens here (thanks Sligeach_eire!)

Our tireless research has resulted in a thrilling discovery! Yes, today we learned that Inklings play basketball! The existence of a new stage, Goby Arena, indicates that Inklings may even play the sport competitively.

As you can see, the details of the sport have been fairly well preserved. The arena is complete with a full-size locker room, polished wooden court, concession stands, jumbotron, VIP seating, and memorabilia shop.

Furthermore, it appears that the arena is converted into an ink-battle stage during the offseason, and this unique location should make for exciting battles indeed. We suspect that the mid-court area, along with the two basketball hoops on each side of the court, will be a focal point for all battle types. Gaining control of the hoop on your side of the stage will give your team the high ground you need to push forward. We’ll continue to closely monitor this new development and will provide updates in due course.
